Alex by Pierre LeMaitre starts out with a kidnapping and a beating and a young woman shoved into a suspended cage in a rat filled abandoned warehouse with no food. How she escapes certain death is the first part of the story, but to Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven, of the Paris constabulary, the story is about to get very complicated. The mystery builds as he tried to find this woman whose name seems to be different with every sighting. He is always one step behind her, and dead bodies seem to be piling up everywhere she has been. This is the first book in the Parisian trilogy about Camille Verhoeven, detective extraordinaire.
